It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
Unfortunately, due to a ‘work emergency’ I’ve arrived home at dinnertime with frozen lamb in the freezer and no wine to open.
The good news is that 2 days ago we had lamb & wine, so I’m going to just point at what we had then.
The dinner was those Loin Chops, the inch or 2 thick “mini-T-bone” ones. Stood on the bone end in a cast iron skillet, into a 400 F oven for about 20 to 25 minutes. Bit of salt, pepper and garlic salt.
The same one I had in this posting so that review will stand:
The wine: Samuel Wynn & Co. “Dice With Destiny, Red Blend 2017”. A very nice, full of flavor, and drinkable wine. I like it. Nice fruit, but not overbearing on the tannins as some reds can be. Reminds me of an Italian table wine. Intended to accompany a rich meal and just taste good.

It looks like Australia has a new Dinosaur species!
Scientists say new dinosaur species is largest found in Australia
Scientists in Australia have classified a new species of dinosaur, discovered in 2007, as the largest ever found on the continent.
The Australotitan cooperensis or “the southern titan”, is among the 15 largest dinosaurs found worldwide.
Experts said the titanosaur would have been up to 6.5m (21ft) tall and 30m long, or “as long as a basketball court”.
Its skeleton was first discovered on a farm in south-west Queensland.
Palaeontologists had worked over the past decade to identify the dinosaur – distinguishing it from other known species by comparing scans of its bones to those of other sauropods.
Sauropods were plant-eating dinosaurs known for their size. They had small heads, very long necks, long tails and thick, pillar-like legs.
These dinosaurs roamed the continent during the Cretaceous Period, about 92-96 million years ago.
So they finally decided it was it’s own species. Nice.
Wonder how it would go with a Red Blend… ;-)
